Lazy cleaning day and farewell to my lava lamp

A day of cleaning is a day of reckoning as my godmom sneeringly pointed out, having spent the entire morning at her place, cleaning my room. Goodness! Is that where that blouse was? I thought a friend had borrowed it without my permission although she has a propensity of returning borrowed pieces.

Cleaning has never been my forte, however, it is a chore that must be tackled frequently, for being called a pig and living in a pigsty is not complimentary, although some male friends would disagree, one even proudly expressing that his room actually smells like a garbage can left unattended for weeks and reeking of some foul odiferous smell... and he likes that. Needless to say, he doesn't date very often.

Why can't I just ram everything into a trashbag and throw it away, my thought, as I sorted through the endless, even meaningless mess. Of course, it is for the simple fact that sometime ago, I actually spent money to acquire it and it would be like throwing my money away, which is a crime in some countries, or so I was told by a much older lady who can only afford a complete meal at McDonald's which leads me to wonder how she spent her money, but I can't feel sorry for her for I too enjoy visiting the golden arches too many times that I'd care to share.

As I continue cleaning and sorting, I realize that if I could better apply my time and re-prioritize, I'd have a clean room, which makes for an orderly and disciplined mind, or so my godmom constantly tells me, a mantra that is forever embedded in my brain, so you would think I'd have gotten the message.... Isn't she wise? Oh, did I mention that she frowns upon my shopping sprees, saying I have enough clothes and shoes to last me til Armaggedon, but how would she know? Perhaps all the natural and man-made disasters are a sign that the world as we know it is coming to an end and Christ's return is closer than we all thought. And honestly, a girl can never have enough shoes.

Going through my messy room makes me realize that I do not need the hassle of having to do this all over again (until I plan for another splurge)... so... off to the Salvation Army, a worthy organization to which I frequently donate items, and they have pretty unique stuff to sell too, recalling a time not long ago in which I found a lava lamp in perfect condition and was enjoying it until I read a consumer report which said that lava lamps are known to explode...

and oh, here it is, tucked safely away in a box, and folks, that lamp is going back to the Salvation Army but I think I'll write a warning label and tape it onto its base so the next owner is fully aware of the dangers of lava lamps...

I wonder if I should ask a friend over to help me clean and in return they can have anything in my room including my lava lamp, complete with a stylized warning label.

Inviting a friend to help with your room may make them privy to things about you that you would rather them not know.

Hey, thanks for the great comment on my site. I'm not always as funny as I was today but feel free to stop by and endure my mediocrity.

Having just cleaned my room(one thing I detest doing due to my hight and the small vacuum cleaner) I finally finished after about 3 hours of work on my little flat but now to think... I have to do it all over again*sighs* But I must say you have a sence of pride after you clean up.Everything feels a little better and you relax a little more. The hardest thing is starting. And the most satisfying is finishing.

Your god mother is right about the cleaning. It's a necessary evil...but one can never have enough shoes or clothes! It's a woman's perogative. haha.
